Manchester United will lock horns with Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon, hoping to pick up all three points on their home turf. The Red Devils will be coming into the match on the back of a disappointing 4-1 loss to arch-rivals Manchester City, whereas the Lilywhites recorded an emphatic 5-0 win over Everton on March 8.

Team News

‘Raphael Varane has returned to training after contracting Covid-19 but Cristiano Ronaldo has been working separately as he looks to regain full fitness following a hip problem.’Manchester United’s official website stated.

‘Luke Shaw missed the Manchester City game, after also testing positive for the virus, with Alex Telles operating at left-back at the Etihad Stadium.’

‘There are hopes Edinson Cavani could make his first appearance since the 1-1 draw at Burnley last month. The South American striker scored in the corresponding fixture with Spurs, a 3-0 victory in late October.’

Mason Greenwood remains suspended until further notice after being arrested on suspicion of rape and assault.

Ralf Rangnick will probably opt for the 4-3-3 formation with several tweaks from the last game. Raphael Varane might get the nod over Victor Lindelof in defence, whereas Edinson Cavani seems likely to make his way back into the starting eleven.

Defence

David de Gea is expected to start between the sticks for the upcoming clash. The Spanish shot-stopper would be looking to put up a strong performance and secure a clean sheet on Saturday.

Raphael Varane is expected to start at the heart of United’s backline, with skipper Harry Maguire slotting into the left-centre back position. Diogo Dalot should start at the right-back position, whereas Alex Telles will fill in on the other flank as the left-back.

Midfield

Scott McTominay is expected to start in the defensive midfield position, whereas Fred will slot in as the central midfielder.

Bruno Fernandes remains a sure-fire starter for Manchester United this week, and it’ll be an understatement to say The Red Devils will be highly dependent on the Portugal international’s creative work if they wish to pick up a win on Saturday.

Paul Pogba will have to settle for a place on the bench, but he could be brought on in the second half of the contest if needed.

Attack

Jadon Sancho and Anthony Elanga will take up the wide positions, causing menace for Antonio Conte’s men down the right and left-wing, respectively.

Edinson Cavani is expected to lead the line for Manchester United this weekend. The 35-year-old striker’s adept movement in front of the goal could cause a lot of trouble for the Spurs defence that has kept two clean sheets in their last five matches across all competitions.

Marcus Rashford could be brought off the bench as an impact substitute in the second forty-five minutes of the match.
